If you’re a golfer – no matter what your handicap or experience – you’ll appreciate Tucson and surrounding area golf. Why? Because
- it’s plentiful. There are no fewer than 46 courses in the 20 mile Tucson radius! Even more when you expand your search to include all of Southern Arizona.
- it’s year ’round. Tucson’s climate makes for amenable play no matter the season.
- it’s affordable. There’s a price point for every golfing budget.
- it’s picturesque. Golfers can enjoy a round while basking in the natural authentic beauty of the Sonoran desert landscape or awe-inspiring views (both near and far) of our Santa Catalina, Santa Rita, Tortolita or Tucson mountain ranges. Now this is the way to see the “real Southwest!”
- It’s respectful of the desert environment. For example, all Tucson municipal golf courses and many private and resort courses are irrigated with reclaimed water.
- Tucson courses offer varying degrees of difficulty. From municipal courses, to public/daily fee courses, to private/resort courses, there’s truly 18-holes to exceed every golfer’s need, want or expectation.
